In this episode Greg is joined by The Man in the Black Shirt, Mr. DevOps, Donovan Brown. This is the second time in a row where Donovan has joined us for the first show of the year, hopefully starting a new tradition. We chat about DevOps, "There can be only One," looking back on DevOps in 2017, forward into 2018 and much more...
Meet The Man in the Black Shirt. Donovan Brown is a Principal DevOps Manager on Microsoft's Cloud Developer Advocacy team. Why is DevOps one of the hottest topics? Because it hurts the most. Luckily, Donovan's unofficial tag line is #RubDevOpsOnIt and he's here to make it all better.
Before joining Microsoft, Donovan spent seven years as a Process Consultant and a Certified Scrum Master. Developer Tools are his thing. Donovan has travelled the globe helping companies in the U.S., Canada, India, Germany, and the UK develop solutions using agile practices, Visual Studio, and Team Foundation Server in industries as broad as Communications, Health Care, Energy, and Financial Services.
What else keeps the wheels spinning on The Man in The Black Shirt? Donovan's also an avid programmer, often finding ways to integrate software into his other hobbies and activities, one of which is Professional Air Hockey where he has ranked as high as 11 in the world.
[From Last Show] Donovan also runs one of the Nation’s fastest growing online registration sites for motorsports events, DLBRacing.com
